I was able to buy this car in 1979 for $5,500. It is a no-hit car that was in good shape for its age. It had an ugly paint job on it, but aside from that was (and is) really cool. Like my Chevelle, it had been off the road from 1984 until 2015 when I rebuilt the 280 and began to restore it back to how it left the factory. I still have much to do and with how crazy the prices have escalated I need to make a decision on just what direction I will take it. For now it is a project-in-waiting and just a fun driver around town.
